My training began at Prana Yoga College and continues through continuous study and practice. I have an M.A. in Transpersonal Counselling Psychology from Neropa University and am a full time musician. I bring these skills into my classes, whether in the form of meditation or through instrumentation with a banjo or guitar. In my classes, I strive to respect and honour the rich traditions of yoga. While we concentrate on the physical practice of Hatha yoga and enjoy the health and vitality it creates, yoga can help us to loosen the grip of ego in order to become more awake and compassionate. I encourage present-centredness through graceful vinyasas (flows) as well as longer holdings of postures. As much as possible I include essential pranayam (breathing) techniques to energize and rebalance
It is about becoming present to all that life presents us with. Yoga is about creating balance in our bodies and minds, and creating harmony in our world.
